The budding meteorologists were obviously Too Busy Looking Out The Window at clouds to pay Attention the day capitalization was Covered In Grammar Class.

The following showed up in my e-mail this morning and I felt transported back Into The Eighteenth Century:

The National Weather Service in peachtree city has issued a Flood watch for portions of north central Georgia, Northeast Georgia and northwest Georgia. From Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon Showers and a few thunderstorms with moderate to heavy rainfall are expected too move into northwest Georgia early Wednesday morning in association with a strong upper-level system. Moderate to heavy rain will then spread across the remainder of north Georgia during the day Wednesday. Rainfall totals will average 2 to 3 inches across north Georgia, With Locally Higher amounts possible.

The soil across north Georgia is saturated from recent rainfall. The additional expected rainfall will result in considerable runoff into area rivers, Creeks, And Streams. Several creeks, Especially In Northwest Georgia, Are Already At bankfull or in minor flood. Many of these same creeks and streams, As Well As additional ones, Will Likely Reach or exceed flood stage Wednesday through early Thursday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions, A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecast. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Ye All have been Duly Warned. I remain

Are you saying that this email is genuine? Mind you, regarding correct capitalisation, it doesn't help that many movie credits or posters utterly ignore the rules. Very confusing for young meteorologists.

P.S. to Pat: I and I alone understand your postscript, but that is all right. Have you been taking lessons from Putz?

They probably wrote hurriedly because they were eager to move to higher ground. I hope YOU'RE staying dry.

Snow, we live near the top of a hill, so we are staying high and relatively dry.
